A student requested class that will take a historical and sociological look at how cultures have embraced, accepted, rejected or ignored people who were non-heterosexual. We will utilize writings, films, literature about and by lgbtq people and study individuals who did not live as heterosexual. We will look at major events in history that have shaped and impacted how society views the lgbtq community and how the lgbtq community sees itself. Some of these recent events may include, the Holocaust, Stonewall, AIDS and the Marriage Equality Movement.
